Rumors from Korea are suggesting that Samsung’s Galaxy S III will boast a 4.65-inch Super AMOLED Plus display with 1280 x 720 resolution. DDaily reports that Samsung Mobile Display has started production on the upcoming Galaxy S3 screen, which is the first non-Pentile phone display from the Samsung’s OLED race to reach HD resolution.
So what does â€śHD Super AMOLED Plusâ€ť actually mean? The AMOLED part refers to Samsungâ€™s use of OLED technology, arguably the best screen tech to be found in mass production today. Organic Light Emitting Diode dispenses with separate backlighting, so that blacks are truly black. This leads to phenomenal contrast, and power use is lower than LCD too when displaying dark content.
Samsungâ€™s sAMOLED displays have until recently has been pentile, which means that individual RGB sub-pixels were visible, lending a slight blockyness to text and edges on close inspection. Now they have switched over to non-pentile for the Galaxy S3 which should deliver a stunning display.
The Galaxy S III may not be too far off from release, as Samsung has told AsiaE that they have started testing the device with Korean carriers.
